NEW YORK, Jan 5 (Reuters) – The euro tumbled to near a
nine-year low on Monday, undercut by growing concerns that Greek
parliamentary elections will result in a left-wing government
that will aim to cancel austerity measures along with a big
portion of Greece’s debt.
The left-wing Syriza party holds a narrowing lead ahead of
Greece’s Jan. 25 general election over the conservative New
Democracy party, opinion polls show. New Democracy imposed
unpopular budget cuts under Greece’s bailout deal.
